New England Ruins
A couple of years ago I stopped back in my home town for a day while on my way to New Haven. It was the first time I'd been there in nearly 20 years and I couldn't believe how much it had changed. Most of my old landmarks had been knocked down and built over, but what really shocked me was my old elementary school. It hadn't been torn down, replaced or remodeled. Just boarded up and left to nature. There were weeds filling the front courtyard that were as high as the roof.
This collection of photos by Rob Dobi consists of other buildings in New England that have been left to decay. Their beauty makes me wish I could go back to my old school with his eyes and a camera.
